i just installed openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64). I tried to use Snapper but
using the Yast2 plugin failed as well as "sudo snapper create".
var/log/snapper.log told me: libsnapper(3529) - mkdir failed errno:2 (No such file or
Using strace i found that snapper needs the directory "/.snapshots".
After creating this directory, everything seems to be fine, i can now
create snapshots, and Yast automatically creates them.
Perhaps snapper could auto-magically create the directory if needed?
